DVD & Blu-ray review: Firefly: The Complete Series (12)
Various directors DVD/Blu-ray (625mins)
Friday 19 April 2013
joss Whedon's perky series about wisecracking, renegade space cowboys, operating 500 years in the future, might have infamously been axed in 2002, but since then Firefly (above) has become the definitive cult success, spawning a terrific film, Serenity, and topping numerous lists for best sci-fi series.
And, like Whedon's Buffy, it's a nimble, quick-witted adventure series powered by the considerable charm of its lead, in this case Nathan Fillon's kind-hearted captain, Mal. Huge fun.
